Americans Have Momentum, Just Not the Lead in Presidents Cup
The International team has the lead. The Americans feel like they have the momentum in the Presidents Cup. Ernie Els and his inspired International team had a three-point lead going into the weekend, its largest since its only victory in 1998 at Royal Melbourne. But it could have been more. The International team was leading every match at one point. Momentum changed when Patrick Cantlay made birdie on the 18th to win the match. And then Justin Thomas made an 18-foot birdie on the final hole to win another point. Next up is a double session Saturday.
